Netflix's 'You' Season 2 Is On Its Way And Penn Badgley Called It "Nauseating"

Alicia D'Aversa 17 Jun 2019

You was once a failed Lifetime show that made its way to Netflix where it soared to new heights.

Penn Badgley plays a sadistic sociopath with striking ease and kind of makes you fear for your life.

‘You’ Season 1 was a smash hit for Netflix.

You followed the story of Joe and Beck, two pretty college-aged people living in New York City. But there was more lurking under the surface than a typical love story.

Especially since it was based on situations a lot of women go through.

Creepy guys who are sociopaths and hunt women?

Hits a little close to home.

At first Joe, played by 'Gossip Girl's Penn Badgely, seemed like the perfect guy.

He was smart, caring, funny, and considerate — but soon Beck learned the truth, and realized that Joe was stalking her, her friends, and her family.

There was romance, violence, sex — you name it, ‘You’ had it.

Joe murdered no less than three people (and kidnapped two of them) during the run of the first season, and the season finale shocked everyone. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

Beck had almost escaped.

Just when it looked like Beck was about to be free of Joe’s terror and influence, the little boy Joe had been grooming to follow in his footsteps betrayed her.

And the shocking twist:

Netflix

Joe murdered her and framed her therapist.

Talk about wild, jeez.

Fans didn't know what to expect next.

Killing off its main character was a bold move for the Netflix show and had many people wondering if there would be a follow up season, and what that season would be about.

But there are a lot of ways it could go.

Netflix

Joe trying to get away from police suspicion? Joe having a new obsession?

We'll find out soon!

Side note: personally, I love that he tells it like it is.

Netflix | HR

I think that is super important, especially since he's a man.

We need that call out.

During the first season, a lot of fans had a crush on Joe. Yeah, you read that right.

Despite his murderous tendencies, people online were really into Joe. Maybe it’s Penn Badgely’s dreamy good looks, but the actor himself was having NONE of it, and frequently responded to tweets about Joe’s desirability negatively.

He even gave this little hint away about Season 2.

It looks like Penn is on a mission to make sure people know Joe is a bad guy that they definitely do NOT want to be involved with, and Season 2 is going to help him do it.

Good news for him, and for us, because...

'You' Season Two is on the way.

Except no one knows the release date just yet.

But we do know that things are about to get even more intense!

Recently, Penn Badgley spoke to ET about the new season.

Netflix

"There are some things I’ve done with prosthetic bodies in this [new] season that were kind of nauseating as I did them, I will say that,” he said.

Considering the fact that season one was pretty gruesome, what does that mean for the second season?

Netflix

Probably a lot more blood and violence.

How pumped up are you for season 2?

Netflix

Personally, I'm excited. The first season was captivating and horrible all at once.

Let us know in the comments if you're interested in the second season!
